Crinaloo's Dan O Horgan
I recall the poems of Dan O Horgan he was a renowned Duhallow poet
When I was a schoolboy in Millstreet he was one of literary note
He was famous Crinaloo's old Dan O some of his poems living today
Perhaps it should go without saying that with words he did have a way.
Dan O penned some fine poems and ballads five decades back when I was young
On Winter nights around the fire grate I heard them recited and sung
It is a changed place now Duhallow from the Duhallow I once did know
And the poems and songs of Dan O Horgan a memory from Seasons ago.
To Duhallow's famed literary icons Crinaloo's Dan O Horgan belong
With his words he made many happy he was an old laureate of song
From his home by the bog road to Crinaloo through his poems he was known far and wide
A famous wordsmith of Duhallow and the pride of his home countryside.
Duhallow has undergone changes and few things ever stay the same
But the ballads and poems penned by Dan O assures him of enduring fame
He had the gift of writing poetry and that is a beautiful thing
A Duhallow literary icon and his praises we ought to sing.
